Are You Dieting But Not Losing Weight?

I hear a lot of girls saying they are dieting but not losing weight. They are “good” most of the time and then go off plan just enough to not lose weight. They stay in a loop. But it FEELS like they are trying hard when in reality they are trying too hard then rebounding with overeating.

If you are dieting and not losing weight let's talk!

Your Food is Boring!

If your food is boring and disgusting then you are doing it wrong. After all, you can only suffer miserably through so many meals before finally bagging it altogether, so it's important that you make your food something healthy and that you can look forward to having.

Let go of the idea there are a few safe foods to eat. If you are dieting and not losing weight you need to try NEW and EXCITING things because there are no magic foods! Check Pinterest or ask in one of my Facebook Lives for help from my #pnpgroupies.

You Are Eating Too Little!

I tell my girls  to JOURNAL their food  for a few days. Notice if you trying too hard. Start eating when you feel hunger and stop when you are satisfied.

Hangry is not a requirement.

Food Prep!

A lot of you make a Monday declaration to DO GOOD this week. You'll do a little planning but back it up with no action.

Once you have a plan, prep what you can. The more you think ahead and prepare the more likely you are to make a good choice each time you eat.

Too many of us just suffer from a lack of preparation. We aren't weak, lazy, or incapable. We have to make healthy choices 3-6 times a day. Don't rely on yourself to WANT to make a healthy choice.

Take as much thinking out of your week about what you will eat as you can. It's that simple.

On Sunday, take a look at your week. When do the kids have practice? When do they have games? What meetings do you have?

MAKE A DANG PLAN and cook some. Bag up snacks, have dinner made or ready to go, know exactly what you will order if you eat out, and pack a few easy lunches for work. It can be EASY.

Doing a few small tweaks helps you go from thinking about dieting all the time to actually losing weight each week.

    What is your fee for the private accountability groups? Do you have one just for diet/food tracking? Thanks

      The Facebook groups have no fee. Some of them people do Shakeology or a BB video and some don’t do any of that. I just offer different themes at the first of each month. I do have a food journal group this month but it is completely full. I capped so we wouldn’t get too big. I’ll do them again starting Oct 1. If you want to know about them make sure you check the PNP FB Page regularly.

      On Sept 15 I re-launch my private member site. It will have forums, access to my custom workouts, advice, our recipes. It’s only 5.95 a month so you get a safe place to talk to people like you and I moderate it like a HOUND. I tolerate no drama. I don’t have problems though. My people are the best in the world! 🙂 I wouldn’t be who I am today without the PNP girls.

        Thanks for the info. Corinne. I am a FB FAN and will be on the look out for the Sept. 15 re-launch.


Hi, I'm Corinne

I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
